NBC have renewed Will & Grace for Season 11 ahead of the end of season 9 of the resurrected sitcom.
“As far as I’m concerned, we can’t get enough of Will & Grace and 23 more episodes is music to my ears,” said NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt in a statement. “We’re eternally grateful that Debra, Eric, Sean and Megan feel the same way and wanted to keep this good thing going. I’m overwhelmed by the euphoric response the new show has received from the press and the audience, and my hat is off to the unrivaled writing team of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, as well as the brilliant directing of Jimmy Burrows, for consistently delivering one of the best shows on television.”
The current 16-episode season will have its finale on Thursday, April, 5. Season 11, which will also consist of at least 18 episodes, is poised to premiere in Fall 2019, while Season 10 will debut in Fall 2018.
The series’ four leads — Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally — announced the news Saturday night at PaleyFest in Los Angeles. Will & Grace is currently NC’s top rated sitcom.
